Matrox and other 3rd Party I/O Vendors with CS4
PDF and video information
By dhelmly aka DavTechTable | September 25, 2009
As many of you know, over the past several weeks, Adobe has been working with the 3rd party I/O board vendors and their current CS4 drivers. This has been a joint effort between these companies and Adobe. CS4 introduced a number of changes ranging from 64 bit memory addressing to I/O calls and so on.
The recent Matrox Axio & RTX driver is working quite well with only a few minor issues for Windows users. We are highly recommending that Windows users upgrade to Vista64 (or Win7 64 when released) & 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Here is a PDF with information on using Matrox Axio and RTX with CS4 and identifies a few of these issues. Matrox is continuing to make improvements to their driver. Make sure to periodically check their website for updates.
If you have any questions on any I/O cards and Premiere CS4 please feel free to ping me or your 3rd party rep. Adobe engineering and myself are working with these companies weekly.
We are also working on a Premiere 4.2 update due next month. A number of fixes plus support for Native AVC-Intra Import.Stay Tuned. I'll send an update when it's available.
